Insprion 910 ac and power won't work


The power supply may not be putting out the correct voltage, and since the battery has been removed, "rule out" sub out the ram one at a time testing as you go, if no luck! remove the hard drive and reseat it back in place, still nothing, the motherboard is the likely source, I recommend having it assessed.

My Dell Inspron 8500 runs really slow how can I speed it up


Lowest cost solution is defrag and clean-up. Go to My Computer, right click on the c: drive and select properties. First do the clean-up, then click on the tools tab and defrag the disk.

If you have less than a quarter of your hard drive space free, consider a new hard drive as well. Or just uninstalling the programs you don't use and archiving the music and pictures to cds (or DVDs if you have an external burner--the 8500 has a DVD reader only, if I remember right.) Gives you back-up and access.

Next would be ram. I'd recommend at least a gig for XP sp3 any more.

Lastly, If you do need a hd and ram, see what specials are available on new laptops. What you get from selling yours, plus what you'd save from not doing the upgrades will probably buy you a machine that has 10x the hard drive and 6-8x the ram of your old one. Plus a DVD burner.

HP Pavillion dv6700 - black screen


Do the following without the battery inserted.

Let the computer sit with no battery for 24 hours. Do not put the battery in at all. Try using your original memory stick ONLY, with no hard drive and see if it will POST. If it does, insert the hard drive and try again. Could be the new memory...

Another thing you can try is reseating the processor. Turn the ZIF screw, take the processor out (WATCH THE PINS!!) and put back in GENTLY. Leave the memory in the computer, hard drive removed, try to power on.

These models have been known for bad motherboards. Contact HP and arrange to send it in. If you do enough digging on HPs website, you'll find the service advisory.

Sounds like the incorrect RAM (SUPPORTS PC2100 AND PC2700 DDR SDRAM SODIMMs) for that laptop. Also try re-seating the RAM in the socket and that is not installed backwards (hard to do , but I've seen it)
